Police are not yet releasing the name of a Washington man accused of shooting his young son with a BB gun.
Police Chief Ken Hahn said detectives expected to file a report Tuesday with the prosecuting attorney’s office seeking felony child abuse charges against the 32-year-old man.
Police received a call Monday, March 19, from the Franklin County Childrens Division to investigate a report of a 4-year-old child who suffered bruises allegedly inflicted by his father, Hahn said in a prepared statement released Tuesday morning.
The child told officials that his father shot him with a BB gun and Washington officers verified the bruising was consistent with the boy’s story.
